Shooting them with a pistol now!

#1 Post by dhaverstick »

I certainly don't mind the abundance of squirrels around my house but it gets under my skin a little when they don't even run off when I step outside. It's like they're questioning my hunting skills or just think I won't mess with them. Well, I decided to put a little fun into the situation and broke out my 62 caliber smoothbore pistol. I loaded it up with 45 grains of 3F powder and 3/4 oz. of #6 shot.

My house butts right up against the woods and there are several mulberry trees not too far from the porch. They are filled with targets this time of year and when one of them just wouldn't leave, I put a bead on his head and pulled the trigger. One more young-n-tender to add to the freezer!

My nextdoor neighbor is an ex-cop with metal people targets set up in his backyard that he plinks on. A day you don't hear gunfire from somewhere is a rare day indeed.
